DR. CHARLES ANKAR

“I feel my greatest asset is my relationship with my patients. I truly make an effort to treat each person like family,” says Dr. Ankar. When he is not at his practice, Dr. Ankar spends time at the Orange Grove Rehabilitation Center providing dental care to mentally and physically challenged patients.

DR. TOM GARDENHIRE

Tom founded Shallowford Family Dental Group in 2002 with a vision for excellence in dentistry practiced by a group of doctors in the same office. “I enjoy the variety of personalities working together in our practice,” says Tom. “It’s exciting to see different temperaments, talents and convictions working toward a common goal of caring for people. We have a true family atmosphere among the staff and patients.”

DR. J. DAVID LEWIS

We are always learning better science and methods for dentistry.”

  • My family and I would highly recommend Shallowford Family Dental. Dr. Ankar and his staff always treat us well and we value his knowledge as a dentist. They try their best to make what is often a unpleasant experience less uncomfortable and pleasant. Dr Ankar is not only my dentist, he's my friend.

  • A few weeks ago I woke up with a terrible toothache. Shallowford Family Dental was the only office I called that told me I could come in as soon as I could. This was my first cavity ever so I freaked out a little, but the staff was super nice and Dr. Edwards and Mary Taylor did a fantastic job making me feel comfortable. Also due to their skill I was able to avoid getting a root canal!
